As if it weren't bad enough that Joe Haden reportedly missed the Browns meetings and most of the Special Teams portion of practice on Thanksgiving morning, a new report comes out this morning.  I'm told by someone with knowledge of the situation that both Joe Haden and TJ Ward were not in their rooms when the Browns performed their routine "bed check" last night.  The Browns stay at a Cleveland hotel the night before home games to help keep players focused and to ensure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. As a part of this routine, they also enforce a curfew (they do the same for away games as well).  When the 10 PM deadline came last night and Browns personnel performed the "bed check" for Haden and Ward, they were not in their rooms. At this point I do not know where they were or when they returned, but I know they were not there at the deadline.  The players are not required to be in bed by 10 PM, but they are required to be on the floor by 10 PM and acc

Cleveland Bed Wetters: The Natural Paring To The Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns fans channeled their inner fifth graders today with a classic burn, calling the Steelers “Bed Wetters” on their sideline signage. This isn’t the first time Browns fans have displayed their rapier like wit from the stands, who can forget the signs that appeared when Terrell Owens played in Cleveland which stated, “TO HAS BO.” A banner so clever, they used...

Browns push past hobbled Steelers 20-14

So how do you feel about the Browns beating the Steelers? It certainly feels better than the alternative. The Browns defense was dominant against a non-quarterback in Charlie Batch, but they also crushed the entire corps of Steeler running backs. Four fumbles lost and five if you count the one that happened on the last “razzle dazzle” attempt by the Steelers. In all the Browns...

Is there an opportunity for the Browns to beat Pittsburgh? Ask Brandon Weeden

When Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, a self-confessed Steelers fan, bought the team, he said one of his first priorities was to revive the Cleveland-Pittsburgh rivalry. Yes, there used to be a rivalry. Long ago. The Steelers have beaten Cleveland 16 of the past 17 games, but with injuries mounted in Steel City, especially that of QB Ben Roethlisberger, confidence is flowing...

Holmgren out as Browns president

The Cleveland Browns announced after Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh that team president Mike Holmgren has left the organization. Holmgren is scheduled to meet with the media on Monday to discuss his departure, and he presumably will be asked about his possible interest in the Cowboys and whether he plans to coach again. It had been reported some time ago that this would...

Browns QB Weeden has concussion

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas took one look at Brandon Weeden and knew something was wrong with his quarterback. "He was on the ground just kind of shaking his head," Thomas said. Weeden sustained a concussion in the closing minutes of Sunday's 20-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, an injury that brought Colt McCoy off the bench to close out...

NFL Rumors: Mike Holmgren shown the door in Cleveland, where will he land?

With new ownership in place, the Cleveland Browns had already decided to replace team president Mike Holmgren with Joe Banner. The move was announced mid-season but Holmgren is now finished with the franchise with Sunday being his last game with the Browns. Was this the swan song for Holmgren as he finds his way into the broadcast booth or will he return to the sidelines next season...

Mike Holmgren steps down as Browns president

Mike Holmgren’s time as the president of the Cleveland Browns has ended. After the Browns win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Holmgren said his goodbyes in the teams locker room. Reports circulated weeks ago that Holmgren had his eyes set on the head coaching job in Dallas. During Holmgren’s time with the Browns there was a never ending carousel at the quarterback position. Holmgren...

How Ironic Is It The Team That Put Colt McCoy Out Of Service Forced His Return Into N.F.L.Action?

Almost one year ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers knocked the Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy out of action. Today the Steelers knocked the Browns 29-year-old rookie Brandon Weeden out of action forcing head coach Pat Shurmur to  play his back up Colt McCoy. I wonder what went Shurmur’s mind? He certainly wasn’t going to let McCoy throw a pass in the game. He would rather...

Browns and Raiders battling for top-five draft position this Sunday

I don’t think anyone at WFNY is a proponent of losing in order to have better draft picks in the NFL. After 11 games and only three wins for the Browns it is becoming increasingly difficult not to at least think about the draft and where the Browns could end up picking. That being the case, it is interesting that this week’s matchup with the Raiders could prove to be important...
